Monday night is $1 beer night, import or domestic. We had a group of 10 for our bike night. They easily accommodated us with no problem. Service was excellent food was great and moderately priced. I've been here several times before and they have always been consistent. I think they have the best Mexican food in the tri-cities.

Always great staff, good food and reasonable prices. Portions large enough to share, waiters polite and knowledgeable if you want to try something new.

This is a really great place to go have a bite to eat and enjoy the atmosphere. I went out with some friends and we had a great time. The menu is huge so if you can't find anything you like you must not like Mexican food.

Friendly wait staff and managers. The food is Muy Good. After being seated and given a menu, you are given chips and two salsas, red and white. The red salsa is on the top-end of a mild sauce. You can special order a hotter dipping sauce, the verde picante salsa, at no extra charge. I can say that I have... More

The food is great especially anything with shrimp. But they jack up their tax prices, and try to slip in charges because you can't read the checks. Plus the margaritas are gross.

We've been going to Don Jose for years, seen the place go through renovations on the inside while keeping the food great with decent prices. We are always greeted by Juan at the door and the entire staff is great and service is extremely quick. We routinely come back to Don Jose even though other Mexican restaurants like Mi Rodeo...

Went in with our grandchildren thinking we would get a couple tacos for dinner, nothing special. Ordered the steak fajita instead, and it was full of flavor and very spicy! The salsa was the same! Quick service and very reasonable prices.
